Congrats on booking!  We have not yet been to Jamaica so I will be very interested to hear your comments when you return. :laughing7: I'm sure it will be a great trip.  TC  :grin:

We finally tried Jamaica in January, spent a week at Sandals Whitehouse and had a very good time.  So we will see what the Mobay area Sandals are like!  We are also booked into Sandals Royal Hicacos for February (16 nights) and April (3 weeks), it is the best value, as always. :grin:

Congrats on booking!!!

I love Jamaica, but we haven't been to any of the Sandals yet.  We did go to Beaches Negril and had a great time.

Enjoy   :ham:

Beaches Turks and Caicos has been recommended to me as a great place to try.

Turks is absolutely on our list. 

I've been told to leave the all inclusives and just rent a condo in Turks. 


I guess some places you don't need the all inclusive, and others it's the only way to go.

flopnfly, I have not heard that, but what you say makes sense.  Beaches was recommended to us as a great AI with as little interaction with children as you want, but I must admit I really want to go and see the island(s).  I really enjoy AI and think we normally get our best value that way, but it certainly hasn't stopped us from going all over North America and doing the condo/motel thing.
